I am using Ubuntu 13.10 and I'm new in linux world. I try to download Steadyflow Download manager, but I want like Internet download manager: when I click it should automatically download it. Notice: I am using Firefox as web browser.


You probably would like "Xtreme Download Manager". Visually similar to IDM and cross-platform. (You will need OpenJRE)

Check this link : http://xdman.sourceforge.net

Xtreme download Manager can grab downloads from Firefox. Or you can use FlashGot addon in conjunction with the download managers listed here - http://flashgot.net/features


The best download manager for Linux is uGet. It ie probably the closest to IDM and or even has some cool features that IDM doesn't.

Give it a try by going to http://uGetdm.com/downloads-ubuntu
